Sky and Me
by Ruth Lercher Bornstein
The shadows are more beautiful than the actual leaves, the magnified shapes more clear. I've never seen this before. The shadows like this. The early sun shining through the glass doors into the room like this. The wind shaking the tree like this.
I step into the shifting patterns. Into the leaves. Into the flickering light between the leaves. The light just right like this, the wind just right like this. I'd have missed it if I'd stayed in bed. Read more. . .

A Path through Stone
by Bruce Barton, Jonah Bornstein, Steve Dieffenbacher, John Reid
This is a remarkable book by remarkable men—a quartet of original voices blended together in an original way. It's a journey worth taking, this 'path through stone.' Our guides are mature men, poets of experience who have been down some paths of their own. Thus, the multitude of surprises as we round each bend, their voices soaring and blending through passages of fear and anger, through sorrow and danger, as we make our way to exultation and joy, to 'walk the land singing.'" — Lawson Inada, Oregon Poet Laureate Read more. . .
Without A Map
By Gary Lark
These finely-wrought poems testify to the rich interiority of people trapped in hard-scrabble lives. The title itself underlines how the speakers feel their way into uncharted territory. The quiet plain-spoken language lets the poems resist easy epiphanies while showing how solace is sometimes found in brief moments of felt community or glimpses of the rhythms of the natural world. Lark’s language and characters give us a taste of the richness that otherwise impoverished lives can yield, inviting us, too, to observe the world closely, with clarity, and with feeling.

The Last Poems
of the 20th Century
People who don't know what to do with a silent person often stifle what they already cannot hear.
—from "Silent Person"
In his mind he tried on those angelic days when the label businessman no longer fit
"Bruce Barton's wise and understated poems of domestic love, frailty, guilt, allegiance and mystery, are deeply moving. The theme of writing itself is here— the frustrations and processes; learning completion before perfection and to retain his humor, even while he muses that 'we dreamers of the world ride on borrowed freedom.'"
— Sharon Doubiago, Love On The Streets,

A Brief History of the Colorado Water Conservation Board's First 75 Years
By Thomas V. Cech & J. William McDonald
Colorado sits astride the continental divide with all major rivers flowing out of the state. Its climate is relatively arid, with most maoisture falling in the mountains in the form of snow and with rivers and with rivers on the West Slope having relatively more abundant water supplies than the East Slope. Since all major rivers are fed primarily by melting snow, a high percentage of their annual runoff occurs in about three months during late spring and early summer. However, precipitation varies greatly from year to year, resulting in uncertain annual runoff conditions. Read more. . .
